    Thumbs down Risperdal and the unknown side effects

    Here is the skinny about Risperdal, But first let me say that i take risperdal, but i never had this side effect.
    The things that you psychiatrist doesnt tell you that it may cause a stroke.
    what is a stroke you say, well its like a heart attack but it effects the brain, its worse enough I am psychotic, but to add mentally incompetence to the list, heck no!! A stroke can lead to coma, and you may lose your ablility to function well liek you used to. You might not be able to; talk, eat, walk, hold things with your hands, and the list may go on.
    risperdal is a anti psychotic for ppl that have schzophrenia, manic depression, bi polar, post tramatic stress, and basically its a happy pill.
    but for ppl that has had years of having this dose of risperdal will may feel dizzy and fatigued. I had this problem since 2000 and now i am taking a newer pill called sauraquil, i dont know what this pill is about but i will find out eventually.
    I am NOT asking you to stop taking your risperdal, but to tell you should be aware of the side effect.
    If you want to stop taking them tell your doctor first to see if they can prescribe you something similar. they are about hundreds of anti-psychotics and one should be safe to take.
    AGAIN DO NOT STOP TAKING RISPERDAL UNLESS YOU TALK TO YOU DOCTOR AND SO THEY CAN PRESCRIBE YOU ANOTHER PILL.

    Feel Free to give me your feed back on this, and if you have any questions call your doctor or physician
